Amazon shoppers, get excited: We're officially counting down to the online retailer's huge Black Friday sale for 2019. Here's everything you need to know about Amazon's Black Friday discounts, as well as the best sales you can shop right now.
When does Amazon Black Friday start?
Once upon a time, Black Friday discounts launched the Friday after Thanksgiving (this year, that's November 29). But in the past few years, that date has gotten earlier and earlier—and this year, Amazon's early Black Friday deals actually started on November 1, meaning you don't have to wait until the day after Thanksgiving to save big. In fact, some of the most compelling sales just went live today.
We've started to get a sense of some of the early deals you can score this month before the big day (more below), but last year, some of the biggest Amazon sales included discounts on Amazon Echo devices, fitness brands like Under Armour and Gaiam, and electronics like TVs, fitness trackers, and smart home gadgets.
What should I know about Amazon Black Friday sales?
Spot a great deal? Add it to your cart ASAP: The retailer is launching tons of daily deals this November. These limited-time sales expire when a certain amount of time has passed, or when a certain number of products have been sold. (So far, we've spotted discounts on air fryers, anti-aging skincare, women's clothing, basic household supplies, and much more.) Daily deals change throughout the day, so keep checking to make sure you don't miss something great.
How can I find the best Amazon Black Friday deals?
First things first: Are you an Amazon Prime member? Similar to Prime Day, many of Amazon's Black Friday sales will be exclusive to members. You can score a free 30-day Prime trial, and then you'll be charged $119 a year (or $13 a month) after your first month. You can cancel anytime, and it's well worth the money; you get access to exclusive music, videos, e-books, and audio streaming services, as well as free two-day shipping on qualifying items (score!).
This year, you should also pay attention to bundles, especially on Amazon devices. We're seeing lots of impressive discounts on two or more smart home gadgets when you buy them together (which is good news, since they make great gifts).
